As far as they can remember, the Solé family have spent every summer picking the peaches from their orchard in Alcarràs, a small village in Spain. But this year’s crop could be their last, as they face eviction. The new plans for the land include cutting down the peach trees and installing solar panels, which causes a rift within the large tight-knit family. For the first time, they face an uncertain future and risk losing more than their home.

Following the international success of Summer 1993 (2017), Alcarràs is inspired by director Carla Simón’s own farming family from Alcarràs in the Catalonian region of Spain, and features an extraordinary cast of non-professional actors speaking the Catalan dialect specific to the area. It won the Golden Bear award at this year’s Berlinale and is nominated for Best European Film, Best European Screenwriter, and the European University Film Award at the 2022 European Film Awards.
